The Tony-winning National Theatre revival of Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes ends its limited run July 15, after opening at Broadway’s Neil Simon Theatre March 25.
Directed by Tony Award winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse), this new production of Angels in America opened to critical acclaim at the National Theatre last May, where it became the fastest-selling production in the theatre's history, and to rave reviews on Broadway in March. Earning 11 Tony Award nominations, it set a record for most-nominated play, ultimately winning three including Best Revival.
Members of the original London cast, including Tony Award winners Nathan Lane and Andrew Garfield, reprised their performances.
In addition to Lane as Roy Cohn and Garfield as Prior Walter, the cast of Angels in America features Denise Gough as Harper Pitt, Emmy Award nominee Lee Pace as Joe Pitt, James McArdle as Louis Ironson, Susan Brown as Hannah Pitt, Amanda Lawrence as the Angel, and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett as Belize.
The production marks the first Broadway revival of Angels in America since its 1993 premiere at the Walter Kerr Theatre.
The production features set design by Ian MacNeil, costumes by Nicky Gillibrand, lighting by Paule Constable, choreography and movement by Robby Graham, music by Adrian Sutton, sound design by Ian Dickinson, puppetry design by Nick Barnes and Finn Caldwell, illusions by Chris Fisher, aerial direction by Gwen Hales, and fight direction by Kate Waters.
